Image
Are you ready kids?!

New information, including the poster seen above, has been released for the upcoming "The Spongebob Musical". Playing the Spongebob himself will be newcomer Ethan Slater and his Spongebob will be joined by characters such as Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Plankton, Mr. Krabs, Gary the snail, Mrs. Puff, Old Man Jenkins, as well as some others. However, characters like Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy will not be appearing.

According to the article production has been preparing this musical since 2008. That seems like a long time but the time has been used wisely.
"“Before there was even a story, from very early on we did movement and physical workshops to explore the idea of whether we could really create these characters onstage without using literal representations of what they look like in the cartoon. The DNA is the same but the form is so radically different, we’re not approaching it literally. We’re not trying to take the cartoon and put it onstage. W…

Could this Star Wars Legends character be coming back into canon thanks to Star Wars Rebels?

Image
*Information is currently unconfirmed and should be treated as a rumor. (But please be true!)

When Disney took over Lucasfilm they turned the Star Wars Expanded Universe, seen in the many novels over the years and considered to be canon by fans, into "Star Wars Legends". The "Legends" stories were officially no longer canon in the Star Wars saga and along with the disappearance of these stories was the disappearance of many fans' favorite characters.

One of those characters was Grand Admiral Thrawn. This character made his appearance in Heir to the Empire which is Book 1 in the Thrawn Trilogy written by Timothy Zahn in 1991. Thrawn was a tactical genius and said to be possibly the best Star Wars villain out there by many fans.

However, thanks to Star Wars Rebels it looks like Thrawn could be coming back into canon! MakingStarWars.net is reporting to hear news that Thrawn could be introduced in the show during season 3 where he'll be hunting down the Ghost …

Final trailer for Disney's Zootopia shows how the two main characters come together.

Disney has just released the last trailer for their upcoming film Zootopia and it is filled with great, new footage.

Classic Nickelodeon shows are getting their own "Nick Toons" film inspired by Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Image
Get ready for a huge blast from the past as it looks like Paramount Pictures is creating a new film starring the various characters from classic 90's Nickelodeon shows that seems to be inspired by the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. As of now it is unclear if "Nick Toons" will feature both live action and animation like Who Framed Roger Rabbit but it is definitely clear that the characters will all be crossing over into one giant film story.

Deadline has reported that Jared Hess has been chosen to direct the film and will write the film with his wife Jarusha Hess.
"The pic is based on an idea by Ali Mendes, who works for Parent at Disruption Entertainment. Mendes grew up loving the characters and hatched the idea to bring them together. Anybody in their 20s, or their parents, won’t need a primer for the signature Nickelodeon characters that will be part of the film at this point: Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh! Real Monsters, and The Angry…

Image
Sony has released the official theatrical trailer for The Angry Birds Movie and it gives fans a good look at what the film is going to be about. We are introduced to Red's backstory as well as a few other characters and are given plenty of laughs to enjoy.
"In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry.  The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to." Enjoy.

Check out this new TV spot for Deadpool that shows off some great new footage including Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead heading toward the Blackbird (the X-Men's jet) and then actually see the Blackbird in flight.

Many people think you are seeing cerebro (mainly because of the doorway) but if you look at the image above it looks like you can see the Blackbird in the background there. I think we are seeing the X-Men pair walking towards the Blackbird and then flying it in the next shot.

He ends up on a gladiatorial planet where his head is shaved and he’s …

It's about time that Elektra steps into the lime light for Daredevil season 2 and actress Elodie Yung who will be playing her has done a great interview that shares some deep information on the character. For those unfamiliar with Elektra, she is an ex love interest of Matt Murdock and a deadly assassin. According to Yung, fans can expect Elektra to be a sociopath with a cold personality.
